Yea just plug into the computer via Universal Serial Bus (USB) and done

But will you just be using it for storing data ? Because there not fast compared to a 3.5 inch drive which are hard drives fitted into computers

An alright price, and a very compact Hard drive. But 30 GB is not enough too me.
#5
Sorry, voted cold.

30GB for £29
or
120GB for £50 (delivered)

Kinda puts it into perspective that this isnt really that hot of a deal. If your interested, it's the "Freecom Mobile 120GB 2.5" Hard Drive" from Amazon, and since it's Freecom you'll actually get a decent hard drive... Beware of this deal - it's a 'DIY' job and the drive they use could be very cheap indeed.

well erm no not really its not hard

Bascally there is two ways of doing it.

1) Simply plugging a new hard drive into the machine so you have two hard drives

or

2) Clone your exisiting hard drive to a bigger one so you have one

Its easier to do one

SO in My Computer it shows up and two hard drives.

Its very easy

When you do it let me know ill help you through it

:)

Also how old is your computer
Do you know if its SATA or IDE?

umm wtf SATA or IDE? must be 2004 we got it and on properties it says 'compress drive to save disc space' is doing that a good idea?:?

EDIT: the 2nd option you suggested sounds better :)

Did you use an Anti Static Band?

All you have to do open the PC stick in a new hdd screw it in the case. Plug the power lead in and IDE cable and You done!

Unless you want to do option 2 thats diffrent harder for you !
banned#19
sorry i got the options mixed up :oops: yeah option 1 looks better and no i know your supposed to use an anti static band but ive put ram in my pc without it and it works swell :)

Yes but if you had staic on you and you put the ram in it would screwed your PC :)

Ive never touched a PC without a band

Because it could cost me alot

Anyway what make is your computer? You need to make sure you got space for another hdd
#21
Just turn the PC off (the switch on the back of the PSU), touch the metal case chassis for a few seconds, and you should be ok... Just use common sense and be careful. The bands are only a few quid so if your inexperienced it may be best for you.

Been building computers for years - never used one - never had any faults caused through static.

Have you tried freeing up sace on you drive by deleting temporary files etc.?

If you haven't done this before then you will free up a lot of space, certainly a good few Gb's:

CCleaner is popular:

Back up your important files first though, to memorystick or burn to cd/ dvd.
